Spanning the commercial and public sectors, the acquisition will enhance Accenture’s strategy and architecture capabilities, with a particular emphasis on central government, defence and security, and financial services.
Founded in 2012, 6point6 has a proven track record of delivering large scale projects for the U.K. central government to transform digital capabilities and modernize legacy systems. With a staff of approximately 400 and offices in London and Manchester, the company’s heritage is in three key areas: digital transformation, data, and cybersecurity. 6point6’s work includes the largest cloud migration in Europe, with the shift of an entire U.K. government department to a single cloud-based digital infrastructure, delivering significant time efficiency savings to a separate government agency via digital services, and the adoption of machine learning to boost productivity for a multinational energy company.
